Youth ministry at CPC gives students opportunities to see God at work in them and through them. It begins with the Bible – reading and hearing the story of God’s love and God’s call to live out that kind of radical selfless love for others. Shaped by the story of God’s love, youth practice that love by making covenants for Sunday School, by helping the church in worship and mission events and by going on short-term and long-term youth mission projects. As students share the real stories of their lives and then look at the stories of faith from scripture, they begin to develop deeper faith that they can apply to their real-life issues. All of this is done in a church community that knows them, loves them, appreciates their gifts and learns from them. CPC is not a place where the youth are always doing their own thing and are isolated from the rest of the church – it is a family where the youth have many Godly parents and grandparents to get to know them and support them as they grow in faith and knowledge of God.
